Blue Day

I was visiting the National Gallery in DC on a rainy day recently with friends.  This gentleman was sitting just outside obviously waiting for his wife since he was holding her coat.  So gloomy day all dressed in blue holding a blue coat!  I told him he was picture perfect... after I'd taken the first couple of photos. I thought... blue... how hard can that be!  Way more of a challenge than expected to make the blues have dimension.   So I'm going to paint another similar one to play with the blues again.
